In “The Medium,” a camera crew in northeastern Thailand’s Isan Province shoots a documentary about Nim (Sawanee Utoomma), a shaman. This form of spirituality is a completely normal aspect of everyday life in that part of the world.
However, at some point during the filming, the crew meets Nim’s niece, Mink (Narilya Gulmongkolpech). Since the death of her father, she has been behaving very strangely, so the case is clear to the natives: Mink is possessed by a nature deity and is about to become a shaman herself.
The film team enthusiastically hopes to be able to film and thus prove the inheritance of shamanism for the first time. However, Mink is getting out of control. She becomes violent and completely unpredictable. Is there something completely different behind all this? Is the girl even possessed by a dark power?
In its production countries South Korea and Thailand, “The Medium” debuted in cinemas in autumn 2021 and became a huge hit. This was followed by a long series of successful performances at horror and fantasy festivals in Europe, North and South America and other Asian countries. On July 28, 2022, “The Medium” will finally be released in Germany on DVD and Blu-ray.
